The rightness or wrongness of that assertion may be debatable but the anger and frustration are quite real. So along comes this guy who doesn’t sound like a politician who declares he can get things done. The fact that the message is no more detailed than “We’re gonna do stuff and it’s gonna be awesome” is really not an issue. The pro-Trump electorate is like a girlfriend with low self-esteem who twists herself in knots to justify staying with a boyfriend who says he’ll take care of her even as he fails to respect her or, for that matter, actually take care of her. The pro-Trump people just don’t care enough to question the details. “Someone’s talking to me. Please don’t go away.”
That is very much an unhealthy relationship and it will end in tears with the white men of middle America curled up in sweatpants on the sofa eating raw cookie dough and yelling back at Fox News.
